Movies!!!

The movies I watched in 2016!!!
People who added this item 132 Average listal rating (91 ratings) 7.1 IMDB Rating 7.6
SUMMARY: Based on a novel and subsequent stage play by Agatha Christie; ten people are invited to an isolated island, only to be killed one-by-one. Could one of them be the killer?
WHY I CHOSE IT: Agatha Christie!
MY COMMENT: Very good movie. The plot is of course ingenious, the actors are top class and the pacing is more than decent. No big flaws to talk about. I even like the semi happy ending!

The Hucksters (1947)
SUMMARY:
WHY I CHOSE IT: Deborah Kerr - my favorite, but also I wanted to see more of Clarkie boy!
MY COMMENT: This could have been a great movie, but it comes of as an okay one. You can see that the story was watered down as to it's original format in a novel - and this takes the bite out of it. Performances are mostly good, some outstanding, despite the fact that I find Deborah to be wasted in a non-consequential role.

SUMMARY:
WHY I CHOSE IT: Humphrey Bogart, I guess
MY COMMENT: Interesting movie. While not top class, I loed the main charactedr, Dr. Clitterhouse, such an unusual gangster film lead! Too many cliches to be a true gem, but still nothing really wrong with it.

SUMMARY:
WHY I CHOSE IT: Suzy Parker - such a beautiful woman, and Cary was also a plus factor.
MY COMMENT: Auf, what a waste! While the movie could have been a charming, sophisticated comedy, ti turned into a bubbling mess of a half baked story, some bad acting (sorry to say Suzy is not a good actress), and several out of place characters. No, it's not a bottom of the barrel movie, but considering the talent involved in it, dismal. Not recommended.

SUMMARY:
WHY I CHOSE IT: I wante dto watch everything with Hedy Lamarr - so here it is!
MY COMMENT: Meh. Mediocre musical. Fine enough to watch once, but not twice. Nothing is terribly out of place but nothing is especially good. Bob Walker is charming, June Allyson I dislike anyway, Hedy is okay.

SUMMARY:
WHY I CHOSE IT: I want to watch all movies with Greer Garson.
MY COMMENT: Not that bad, but it takes itself too seriously to work as a proper movie. If only it had more levity, I would have liked ti better. Greer is charming as always - Joan is so so, and Bob Taylor is decent enough.

SUMMARY:
WHY I CHOSE IT: The clothes!
MY COMMENT: Melodrama just went a notch up. Sirk know how to control the material but the material is just not good enough. I find Bacall to be very much miscast - they needed somebody like Olivia de Havilland for this role. Hudson is a bland rock, Stack actually has some good moments, and Dorothy Malone, despite being a bit over the top, is mesmerizing! The story is below par, but the cinematography, set and dress design are very good!

High Wall (1947)
SUMMARY:
WHY I CHOSE IT: Can't remember right now, but I guess Audrey Totter
MY COMMENT: A movie that is easily forgotten and that says it all. Far from a total waste but simply it doesn't cut out to be better than hundreds of other film noirs. Has some good moments, especially with the main character's mental state. Everybody does a good job - the director, Bob, Herbert Marshall as the baddie. Only I find Audrey Totter a total bore and wish she could have done better.

SUMMARY: Helen Gurley Brown's self-help best-seller was the nominal source for this Hollywood sex romp, directed by Richard Quine, co-scripted by Joseph Heller and David R. Schwartz, and starring Tony Curtis and Natalie Wood. Tony Curtis plays Bob Weston, a writer for a scandal magazine who is working on an article on research psychologist Helen Gurley Brown (Natalie Wood) and her best-selling book Sex and the Single Girl. Bob needs to interview Helen, but she refuses to see him. Bob impersonates one of her neighbors, Frank Broderick (Henry Fonda), as a ruse in order to see her on the pretext of marital counseling. After several meetings, Bob attempts to seduce her, but she resists; then he phones her and claims he's about to commit suicide by jumping off a local pier. Horrified, she rushes out to save him, but the two accidentally fall off the pier together and then head back to Helen's apartment to dry out. Bob plies Helen with martinis. Rip-roaring drunk, Helen confesses her love for Bob. He assures her it's fine, since he's not legally married, but Helen doesn't believe him and asks to meet his wife, Sylvia (Lauren Bacall). This leads to an endless series of complications, capped off by a wild chase to the Los Angeles airport.
WHY I CHOSE IT: Natalie Wood, want to watch more of her movies.
MY COMMENT: Has some funny moments, but I liked this film more for the nostalgic 1960s feeling and dressed than for anything of any deeper value. Natalie and Tony Curtis have goo chemistry, and that is more or less enough for this kind of a movie to work.

Funny Face (1957)
SUMMARY: Fashion photographer Dick Avery, in search for an intellectual backdrop for an air-headed model, expropriates a Greenwich Village bookstore
WHY I CHOSE IT: Audrey Hepburn of course! And Astaire is not for burning either.
MY COMMENT: Nice, breezy, charming, everything you would want from a musical - everything done right!

Penelope (1966)
Summary
Why I chose it: Natalie Wood
My comment I still think it's better than most of the reviewers peg it. it's not high art, but it's fun and flirty and Natalie Wood is good in comedic roles, something not everybody agree upon. Peter Falk is hus usual wcky detective, and Ian Bannen was a surprise, I kind him a lot! C'mon, this is not a bad movie, it's entertaining and just what a silly comedy needs to be.

Cash McCall (1960)
Summary
Why I chose it: natalie Wood
My comment Works on most levels but not all. The story doesn't flow easily enough, Natalie's character becomes unimportant halfway into the movie, Nina Foch's role is too diminutive, but it does raise some interesting questions about ethics of business and James Gardner is just what Cash McCall needs to be, IMHO. and Dean Jagger is tops as usual.

My comment Fun, fun, fun! Really fun! The leads are top class and play their roles impeccably. i' no Doris Day fan but she was endearing as they come! The story, while far fetched, is a romp and the direction and pacing are really good. REC!

Summary
Why I chose it
My comment: James Coburn is as cool as always, but that's hardly enough to save this movie - it's a standard murder mystery, just with a doctor instead of a detective. Nothing to shout about. I also like Jennifer O'Neil despite the fact that she was a very lackluster actress, but so pretty and interesting!

Summary
Why I chose it
My comment: It's a below average Sherlock Holmes mystery. Very little Sherlockian feeling. Of all the characters, I only found Donald Sutherland interesting, and still have no idea why he was in the movie at all - he's a totally expendable as far as the narrative is concerned. Nothing to recommend it!
